The weekend of Dec. 2-4, we will be hosting our very first IoT Hackathon. The theme is Sustainable Cities; we are looking for ways to minimize the required inputs of energy, water and food. On a smaller scale, how can we preserve energy and prevent wasteful consumption in the home and/or at work?
We are thrilled to be partnering up with Intel to bring you the Intel Edison (https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/edison) hardware kits to play with and build cool apps. Put this on your calendars!
The goal of the hackathon is to learn new programming skills, have fun, and work in teams to build sustainability solutions. We want to provide a space for people of all backgrounds to learn about IoT, work on a new portfolio project, or spend all weekend tinkering with hardware. A
ll levels are welcome! You will be working in teams of 3-5 to come up with the next great solution for Sustainable Cities!
Dates: Friday, Dec 2 - Sunday, Dec 4
No overnight. We will be leaving by 10pm on Fri/Sat
Format: On Friday, we will have short talks about IoT, we will pitch ideas and form teams. Saturday will begin with a workshop on Intel Edison, followed by hacking all day. On Sunday, you will be finishing up, as presentations will start at 1pm. We expect to be done around 3pm.
